A little late, but better late than never!

We spent Christmas this year with my family up north. We had a great week of visiting and food. This year, the theme was simple. We wanted to enjoy time with family rather than spending so much time in the kitchen. And I wanted to make sure that the food was as good as in the past, and the menus elegant. Here’s what we came up with.
